Why Choose us?

Why Choose Us?

  • Our Buddhist-inspired ethos supports well-being AND academic excellence. Mindfulness has scientifically proven benefits in education and crucially we teach it as an integrated, transformative practice rather than just an ‘add-on’.
  • Our skilled staff team has the flexibility and creativity to respond to individual needs and interests. National standardised assessment (rather than SATs) ensures pupils reach necessary levels with a sense of confidence and well-being.
  • We offer all the advantages of a small, community school (a low pupil/staff ratio and reduced class sizes) but with opportunities to get involved in a range of activities, from Sport to Music to Forest School.
  • Investing in an emotionally intelligent primary education is vital for developing life-long learning behaviours, and our school fees are among the most competitive in the independent sector.
  • Community is at the heart of our school; we value collaboration, kindness and compassion (towards plants and animals as well as people). Our pupils make a positive contribution to their community and the world at large.
  • We offer all the benefits of a Buddhist-inspired ethos, yet crucially we are not a faith school. We are open to families from all faiths and cultures.
  • We are well located in north Brighton close to major transport routes including the A27 and A23, making for a manageable school run within a 20 mile radius.
